yup - agreed; indeed I see from their 'instruction manual' that the Little Alligator is just about the only Morley pedal they recommend you can use in the loop. Everhtying else has to be between the guitar and amp. And in the Boss website, there's a guide book about using effects, and it doesn't rec...

Go with a pregnant wife and plead with the security guards to let you in to the backstage signing session. Hey presto, 2 hours of great chat, photos and autographs with the boys.
